YouTube TV starts streaming in five United States cities”

Live sports, too, will be a major part of YouTube TV thanks to deals with the broadcast networks, national cable sports networks including ESPN, Fox Sports 1 and NBCSN, and regional sports cable networks Fox Sports and Comcast Sportsnet.

Mason County Coroner Wes Stockwell told the Kitsap Sun that Rosa had been visiting his mother who lives in nearby North Mason . Nathaniel Rosa is seen in a photo obtained by KCPQ. "This is insane and perverse", one person wrote, in reaction to the story.

Priced at $35, the service is available in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and Chicago. Getting networks on board is a challenge everyone in the online streaming space will face, and if YouTube can't secure the big networks, it won't matter how much name recognition it has.

Police department brass say the vast majority of the killings are tied to the gang-fueled drug trade in those areas. Patrice L Calvin was discovered shot in the head at around noon in an apartment in the 7500 block of S.

Note: YouTube TV isn't available in the United Kingdom, or indeed anywhere outside five select U.S. cities. After the first month's payment, YouTube offers a free Google Chromecast for users to stream the service to their TVs - as long as supplies last. The service will come to more cities, but YouTube hasn't given a definitive timeline for the nationwide rollout.

YouTube TV initially offers about 40 channels to subscribers in five of the largest USA markets. But Google-owned YouTube TV offers several features the others don't. AMC, BBC America, and IFC are among the soon-to-be live channels added at no extra cost for customers. Viacom-owned channels including MTV and Comedy Central are not part of the lineup. All in all, the list totals 50 channels, with add-on options such as Showtime, horror streaming site Shudder, and Sundance Now. YouTube TV's content offering isn't drastically different to what you can get from Sling or AT&T's DirecTV Now, so YouTube is hoping that the simple pricing and its slick apps can be the difference. Just like the regular YouTube app, you can watch one channel in a picture-in-picture box at the bottom of the screen while browsing for other channels. Will the many young viewers who watch YouTube videos actually consider paying for a streaming service to see more conventional TV? Users can also watch shows previously only accessible on YouTube Red, the company's ad-free subscription service, which also has original series and movies.
